5.1 Google Map

We use Google Maps in order to display maps on our website (e.g. for how to reach us).

5.2 Google Analytics

„This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, text files, which are stored on your computer and which make it possible for your website usage to be analysed. As a general rule, the information which cookies generate regarding how you use our website is sent to, and stored on, a Google server in the USA. If you choose to anonymise your IP address for this website, Google will abbreviate this address within EU Member States, or in other States party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only under exceptional circumstances will your full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and then abbreviated. On instruction from the website operator, Google uses this information in order to analyse how you use the website, generate reports on website activity and provide the website operator with any other services related to website and internet use. The IP address which your internet browser shares with Google Analytics is not amalgamated with any other Google data. You can stop cookies from being saved by changing your browser settings; we would like to point out that, if you do change your settings, you may not be able to use all the website functions fully. Furthermore, you can also prevent Google from collecting the cookie-generated data regarding website usage (incl. your IP address), as well as from processing these data, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.“

IP anonymisation
We use the Google function “anonymizelp” in order to abbreviate IP address. Google describes the function as follows: “The IP anonymisation function, part of the Google Analytics service, sets the last octet in type IPv4 user IP addresses, and the last 80 bits for IPv6 addresses, to zeros shortly after they have been sent to the Analytics data collection network. As such, full IP addresses are never written to the hard drive.”

You decide!

If you allow Google Analytics, a cookie is stored on your device. If you delete the cookie or visit our site with another device or browser, you will need to repeat the process.
